Now that the nights are setting in and there is a distinct chill in the air, I, for one, am craving comfort food. Comfort food often involves a lot of refined sugar and those blasted carbs therefore, I decided to try and recreate a family favourite in a more diabetes friendly fashion.
Daisy loves the apples too!
We have two huge bramley apple trees in our garden which have provided us with fodder for many a Sunday lunch over the past 20 plus years. Apple crumble has always been a top choice and I knew that there must be a way of reducing the carbs and sugar in this much loved English classic – here I give you low carb and grain free apple crumble…
4 x Bramley apples (just give my mum a call and she will fix you up with a lifetimes supply 😜)
Juice of 1 lemon
3 tsp sugar free caramel syrup
100g blanched almonds
50g pecan nuts
50g pumpkin seeds
25g chia seeds
1tsp ground cinnamon
50ml sugar free caramel syrup
- Peel and chop the apples and put in a pan with the lemon juice
- Fill with water until the apples are just covered
- Boil for ten minutes until the apples have turned into a purée and the water has reduced
- Meanwhile, whizz up all the topping ingredients in a food processor until all combined together
- Add the ground cinnamon to the apple mixture and divide it between 6 ramekins
- Spoon 1/2 tsp sugar free caramel syrup over each portion of apples
- Sprinkle topping over each ramekin of apple mix
- Bake in the oven for 10 – 12 minutes
- Serve with a ‘dollop’ of green yoghurt
Dig in and enjoy! Let me know how you all get on!
